Left Overs...

Remember this quilt....this is Carolina Crossroads, a mystery quilt I did 2 years ago with Bonnie of Quiltville....well as always there are left overs!

I have these three Ohio Star blocks plus quite a few other blocks from that quilt left over.
I'm thinking a table runner from these three blocks would be nice for a secret Santa gift...

I have some more of that light background fabric which I could use for the setting triangles, then perhaps a scrappy patch border and I'll have another gift to mark off the list...good one!
Oh, how I wish I had more hours in the day...there's so much I want to do, so many blogs to visit and enjoy....Lots of lovely stitcheries that I've had my eyes on...quilts that are so inspiring and would love to do....UFO's to finsh off...stash to get through, so I can justify buying more fabric...!
Until next time...♥


  1. Looks like a lovely centre piece in the making! I have to make a table centre for our Guild Christmas party, too. I saw a great bargello one and hope to start it tonight. See the pics on my new blog - Airdmillan Ayrings.
